Will Be Difficult To Reschedule The Game

from the Tennessean,
Predators General Manager David Poile says he expects to talk to the NHL today about trying to reschedule last night's game against Detroit. The contest was stopped with 7:30 left in the first period — with the Predators leading 1-0 on Greg Johnson's goal — after Detroit defenseman Jiri Fischer collapsed on the team bench. It's uncertain whether the game will be replayed in its entirety or resumed from the spot it stopped. Poile fully supported the decision to postpone last night's contest, but said it will be difficult to reschedule the game. "It won't be easy at all,'' Poile said. "Not only is it an Olympic year, which makes the schedule more condensed, but we've played the fewest games in the league. We've already had most of our days off. It's not going to fall into a good situation.''
